Description
This documentary recounts the story of the 1977 Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team’s victory in the European cup which put Israel firmly on the map. Featuring interviews with the Jewish American athletes who made history, On the Map combines the action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War to deliver a film that honors Israeli heroes, captivates basketball fans, and captures the spirit of a triumphant nation.
